Picture of Sculpey Mr. Spock
Sculpey is one of the many brands of polymer clay on the market.  It's one I happen to like, but that may simply due to the fact in my small rural community I can access it pretty easily.

This instructable will walk you through creating your own Mr. Spock, which can be used, after you create it, as a magnet, random desk item, or a Spock for your pocket.  (You know you always wanted a Spock in your pocket!)

As Kiteman said Spock + pocket = Spocket

Everyone needs a Spocket!!

Step 2: The Armature

Creating the armature is important, why you might ask?  An armature is basically the skeleton of your sculpture,  Yes you can do this with out an armature, but I prefer one.  I'm also getting ready to teach my class about armatures and having an example is always helpful.

For this armature I took three paper clips and bent them out into a basic human shape.  I went ahead and put some masking tape on to keep it from moving around to much, but this isn't completely necessary.

Step 3: Don't Lose Your Head

I then went on to create the neck and head of Spock.  By rolling a small coil I created the neck then a lovely round ball to attach his head.

I then added some basic details of the head, ears and a nose.  Mainly because it bothered me to see a big round ball for a head, I wanted to give it some shape.  This also helped me to decide other sizes for the rest of Mr. Spock's body.

Step 4: It gets cold in space, so put on a shirt

Mixing white and blue sculpey together I created Mr. Spock's shirt.  I placed half of it on one side, then half on the other, adding and removing clay as needed.  It is not important at this point to worry to much if Mr. Spock is looking a little rough, you can clean him up at the end.

I like your Spock!
I love it!
I would recommend Bake & Bend Sculpey, giving the figure some posability and a better transporter (=pocket) endurance.
